Unlike the fear of WMD's in Iraq, this is a very real crisis the world finds itself in. The global recession has the potential to become very very bad. Obama is just being honest with you. Would you prefer he act like the Republican leaders and completely lie to you about damn near everything? Things are not rosy in the world economically. The sh*t is hitting the fan. I want a president who speaks the truth even when it is not comfortable.
Truth > Comfort.
But that is not so for the right wing faith over facts crowd.
But he's not speaking the truth, that's pretty obvious.
Why else would government spending over a timeframe as long as 5 years be so urgent that it has to get done quickly and without proper discourse?
And you do realize the doom preaching that democrats are doing are only making the problem worse, right? Ever heard of talking your way into a recession? (Or deeper into one, in this case?)
It seems the only one here that's relying on faith over facts is you. I've never trusted our federal government, and I don't intend to start doing so now.
When I hear the government and its highest elected official tell me that something is too urgent to waste time on letting democracy properly run its course, alarm bells go off in my head.
And it concerns me how little most people care as long as their guy is the one in charge. Rah Rah!
